Feeding Your Newborn Baby
Get ready to breastfeed your Baby!
Join us for our next Feeding Your Newborn workshop; to get all the latest information and tips to help you be confident and get ready to feed your baby.
There is so much focus and attention on the journey of pregnancy and birth for you and your baby; but there tends to be very little focus and support in gaining the needed information for what comes next. Breastfeeding!
We are passionate about helping you feeling supported and confident during the next stage of motherhood once your beautiful baby is placed in your arms.
We provide you with breastfeeding information needed to start your journey, helpful tips, and troubleshooting.
Our host Emma Maher (Midwife/Lactation Consultant/Health and Family Nurse) will help you and your baby build the teamwork and bond needed, when it comes time to breastfeed. After all it takes two to tango!
Alongside Emma, Dr Jacey (Chiropractor) will help you discover the different types of latches, and the structural function of feeding and issues that may arise and why. We will also help you learn the best feeding positions to get optimal latch and flow.
Discover the benefits of antenatal hand expressing before delivery and why it might be beneficial for you.
Learn why you shouldn't doubt your milk supply and what you can do to increase it.
If you are pregnant and looking for support and information to prepare you for your breastfeeding journey OR if you have given birth and are in need of some help with troubleshooting feeding...
Then this workshop is for YOU, Mama.
